80s Music Video Of The Day: Huey Lewis And The News – The Heart Of Rock & Roll

80s Music Video Of The Day: Huey Lewis And The News - The Heart Of Rock & Roll

Released as the third single from their album Sports in 1984. The Heart Of Rock & Roll peaked at number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

The video was filmed in New York for 13 hours straight on the Brooklyn Bridge and then later in Times Square.

New York, New York, is everything they say
And no place that I’d rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
All at a quarter to three
When they play their music, ooh that modern music
They like it with a lot of style
But it’s still that same old back beat rhythm
That really, really drives ’em wild
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I’ve seen I believe ’em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating
LA, Hollywood, and the Sunset Strip
Is something everyone should see
Neon lights and the pretty, pretty girls
All dressed so scantily
When they play their music
That hard rock music
They like it with a lot of flash
But it’s still that same old back beat rhythm
That really, really kicks ’em in the
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I’ve seen I believe ’em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating
Johnny, ow
DC, San Antone and the Liberty Town, Boston and Baton Rouge
Tulsa, Austin, Oklahoma City, Seattle, San Francisco, too
Everywhere there’s music, real live music, bands with a million styles
But it’s still that some old rock and roll music
That really, really drives ’em wild
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I’ve seen I believe ’em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating, yeah
In Cleveland
Detroit
Uh, heart of rock and roll
